Killed 100 Monster still no Knowledge for Monster

So I am stuck on this quest for killing red orc warrior. I started killing warriors since I am 25, Now I am 27 and almost 28 and still no knowledge. Is this a bug or insanely bad RNG?

You need to give your heart to RNGesus. Knowledge from kills is indeed RNG.

Are you sure you have *NO* knowledge? Like you can't even see their HP bar?

You can't get knowledge from mobs that are purple, you are underleveled.

Wrong, I got knowledge from purple mobs. Purple berserker, Purple fighter. Got A on Berserker and B on Fighter while they were both purple

Incorrect... you can get knowledge of purple mobs.  Bandit archer, for me.  :)  First kill, too.  It's all RNG.

There is a cash shop item that might help, any of the glasses are supposed to increase your ability to learn about a mob as you kill it (and the earcuffs are supposed to help you learn a higher rank)

But other than that, just keep on grinding away at those mobs.  You'll learn, sooner or later, all that mob has to teach you.

I'd like to hear about the bonus chance to learn a knowledge with the glasses. I don't expect an instant pop for every kill but I have been in the waragon cave for 1 hour trying to get the knowledge for the calphaeon worm and still no luck.

If that's a 0.5% bonus, this is a complete rip-off. Heck even 5% would be a shame.

i am actually having the exact same problem on the exact same mob, for that exact same quest. seems i have killed a million of those kinds of orcs now and not getting the knowledge. i realize RNG is RNG, but is it possible that this is bugged in some way?

This is RNG, not bug, problem etc. You can get knowledge when you kill 1 monster or 1000000 monsters.

Will they ever buff this? It's very time-consuming and mostly it's a C rank. It's kinda depressing, thinking there are still 100s of enemies/items out there that needs to be farmed, and they all have a low-chance of giving out a random rank.

This happens to me all the time. I get to a new group of enemies they all drop their knowledge in 1-2 kills apart from one. Then I have to run around looking for spawns of that one mob killing it over and over. I really really hate Harpy Warriors right now.

There is something weird that goes on with gaining knowledge with certain mobs I have noticed. I personally have all the cash shop items to gain knowledge easier but yet for some reason I still couldn't gain knowledge on the Giant Beserker ( I think that was the one) until after I hit level 52. I can't tell you how many times I mercilessly slaughtered generation after generation of giants in those camps but to give you a rough idea it was holocaust type numbers. 

That one mob just would not give me knowledge and I have no idea why, most other mobs I have had to kill maybe 100 at MOST and the majority in less than 20, something supernatural is happening with some mobs though and no matter what you do they refuse to give it up.

This has happened several times. I am a bit of a completionist and there were several outliers that took a ton of time. Yesterday I got the glasses and earring, will see if that helps. 

 

Other than that, invest some energy in that node and farm for drops while you are at it.

Gaining knowledge in this game can be infuriating at times and what gets my goat up is at times I actually get the title for killing lots of the same mob before I get the knowledge of it.  I was cursing the other day killing junk bots or whatever they are called as I was at it for 5 hours straight before I eventually got the knowledge and I actually got the title way before I got the knowledge of them.

I think they could do with tweaking the numbers a little on the RNG of gaining knowledge as if I can be at it for that length of time and still not get it then surely there is something up with the rng equation. The other thing I would also like which is unrelated is for them to add a glowy effect  around the special deals icon when there is stuff in there ready to be rolled/passed on, I feel like im constantly clicking on the icon to check if there is stuff in there and a glowy effect would help to see at a glance whether items are in there or not.

i find that if I wait a few days and revisit the mob I sometimes get ones I couldn't get in 100 kills on the first couple of kills

I ambeginning to wonder if perhaps there is a constellation lineup in the sky that we can't see that affects our luck based on the "sign" that we chose, such that your luck may change at certain times or days

Would be an interesting twist
